A police officer filmed smashing the windows of a Range Rover in a video clip which became an internet sensation has won more than £400,000 after claiming he was 'ridiculed' out of his job.
Former Pc Mike Baillon, 42, won the payout when an industrial tribunal said he had lost out on his future pension and some earnings when he quit his job.
He had told the tribunal he was the butt of daily mockery by his colleagues in Gwent Police because of the YouTube video.
Pc Baillon's behaviour was terrible to start with - but it is even worse that he has been given so much money.'
The tribunal heard Mr Baillon walked out of his job after being ridiculed every day by his colleagues at the police station where he worked.
He had already been taken off front-line duties because his his 'impaired mental state', one of his former superior officers told the hearing.

“$600,000 for being an a-hole.It could not happen over-here.”
Harry Reid makes over 150k a year in salary.
It is only taxpayer money - not real money </S>
What the heck is he gonna do with 400,000 Ls? Play Wheel Of Fortune?
Time to mock the tribunal.
Remember, this is what the Progressives want to bring to the US .... Third World EU at its finest!
Mr Baillon, who has since set up a business selling wooden reindeer, was awarded almost £440,000 for loss of pension and earnings.
Well he didnt shoot himself in the foot.....while lecturing on gun safety.....in a school.....and then try to sue .
Think those N.Y.C. cops who were robbing people on the hwys after work are gonna sue too?
They called me 2 toes at work for years.....can I sue somebody?
oh the HUMANITY
True. it only pays 400k for POTUS.
He shouldn’t have gotten one dime for his crimes. On the contrary, he should have been jailed immediately.
The full story is that he was stopped 17 minutes earlier but drove off whilst the officer in question was trying to talk to him about his erratic driving, but then took it upon himself to drive off, leading to a 17 minute chase, where he was stopped. The policeman subsequently smashed his window with a truncheon in order to seize his keys and stop him driving off again.
The moral of the story is, if a cop gets you to pull over, don’t then drive off in a tantrum whilst he is talking to you. If he’d been in America, the old boy would have been lucky not to have been shot dead, repeatedly, so that his lifeless corpse danced like an epileptic breakdancer trying to bust his moves on top of an old spin dryer...
Funny scene,,,,,”right!! you vicious bastard!”. Then starts hitting it with the branch.
You surmise too much, especially “tantrum.”
The moral is what we already know. Great Britain and the US are police states.
Surmise nothing. Here is a longer video of the incident:
The man is accelerating away from the police who have the sirens on and are being forced to give chase. He only stops when a police roadblock further up the road forces him to do so. Having so blatantly failed to cooperate with a lawful instruction from a police officer on several occasions, they smash his window in to seize the keys to stop him driving off again, as he had done earlier. I’m no fan of police officers abusing their authority and acting like tools, but this is not one of those occasions.
Yes, it could. Frankly, it does.
